• Cranky Old Bill O’Reilly and Puppet Cohort Rip Jason Mattera

    What are they so scared of?


    If you tuned into The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News tonight, you may have heard the word “nasty” repeated roughly half a dozen times to describe Daily Surge’s own Jason Mattera…and that was all before the segment in question had even begun. Bill O’Reilly was referring to Mattera’s confrontation with Hillary Clinton last week, in which he asked the former Secretary of State to inscribe a copy of her “Hard Choices” memoir to the late Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

    The all-seeing, all-knowing, all-wise Factor Man was absolutely incensed by the notion that Mattera would do such a thing. It’s “ambush journalism,” decried O’Reilly’s lap dog guest Martha MacCallum. “Cheap stuff,” added Bill. This twosome seemed angrier at Jason’s brand of journalism than they were at the fact that it was Hillary Clinton who was largely responsible for the death of her own friend in Benghazi. I guess “ambush journalism” is perfectly acceptable if you spend most of your time embarrassing sexy college coeds for “Factor” ratings or track down Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle in a liquor store, but if you do the same to a political figure essentially running for president, shame on you.

    In any event, if journalists in D.C. were confronting Hillary rather than coronating her, Mattera wouldn’t have to. And O’Reilly knows this. His stunt tonight was nothing more than a televised wet kiss to Hillary Clinton in order to score an interview with her.

    FACTOR TIP OF THE DAY: Shut the hell up.
